Using Data Sharing to Improve Coordination in Peacebuilding
National Academies - USIP Roundtable on Technology, Science & Peacebuilding
This Workshop brought together experts in peacebuilding, information technology, and interagency coordination to identify the needs a data sharing system must address to secure widespread adoption by both government and non-government organizations for use in managing peacebuilding activities.
To understand why coordination is so challenging, Workshop participants discussed the principal technological, ethical and organizational challenges faced by peacebuilders as they attempt to cooperate in building peace. A session on how to improve the impact of shared data examined technologies to improve NGO monitoring and evaluation processes. Finally, participants learned about UNITY, software developed to make visible the scope and scale of humanitarian and peacebuilding activity in a conflict zone.
